I am an LCSW licensed in Oregon, living in Washington state and have over 20 years of experience in the field including 7+ of direct clinical work with children, youth and families and many years of experience supervising clinicians and overseeing counseling programs. Throughout my career I've been known for my strengths-based approach and have a laid back approach in counseling. I believe some humor can be healing even in our darkest moments and we can grow when we are willing to be vulnerable and really let ourselves be seen.
I'd welcome the chance to learn more about you and see if we might be a good fit to get some good work done together.

Courtney always makes me feel comfortable enough to be open and honest about my feelings and hardships. She never fails to let me know that I can use my time in a way that suits me best. She also gives multiple strategies for any problems that I may be facing.

Courtney is a gentle and compassionate person. She is skilled at making you feel heard and respected, even when you feel like your reason for meeting is insignificant.

Courtney often times says things that lets me know that he really understands what is going on with me. I don't just mean that he repeats back to me what I say as some do without really understanding. I have a strong personality and know a lot about how to handle my issues and can voice that pretty well. Courtney is good at telling me when I am off track and there have been very few people in my life that have been able to do that. I am glad that he is my therapist .
